Earthquake: EU mobilises further emergency help for Syria and Türkiye



Following multiple earthquakes in Türkiye and Syria earlier this week, the European Union will provide additional emergency support to both countries through the EU Civil Protection Mechanism and emergency humanitarian assistance worth EUR 6.5 million. This is one of the EU’s largest ever search and rescue operations through the EU Civil Protection Mechanism.
